, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue of national security. and specifically lately on who's a better friend of israel. and there are signs the obama campaign is paying attention. at a military academy in pennsylvania, mitt romney tried to make the case for a new commander in chief. romney once again questioned the president's recent description of events in the middle east as bumps in the road. >> i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what's ahead and is willing to lead. >> reporter: romney's tough talk on iran follows israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu's drawing attention at the united nations to the nuclear worries. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> reporter: just days after the president declined to meet with netanyahu in new york, the two leade
almost impossible for mitt romney in those states and they are responding largely to the economic message, the bain arguments, the 47 arguments, medicare, taxes. that is where it seems to be doing damage to romney. >> you asked the question would you say you were better off than you were during the 2008 presidential election. 31% thought they were better off. 31% worse off. same, 34%. that same 34%, but how are they lining up? >> this is really interesting. this is the question that republicans want to center the election on. are you better off than you were four years ago. and not surprisingly among the roughly one-third who say they are better off, president obama is prerge dominantly, and the ones who say they're worse off mitt romney is winning 10-1. but what is striking to me, the remaining third, president obama is ahead substantially by almost 25 points, 57-34 i believe was the number. >> right. the question was finances has have not changed since 2008. >> so that means that romney is faring poorly on the choice. >> they're saying they're kind of ambivalent about obama's performanc
of the united states, governor romney. i am so proud of this ticket. that me tell you i am also proud of paul ryan. i wore my miami university tie. here is what we have to do. we know the race is going to come down to the wire. we have always known it is going to be close. it is going to come down to last. it is going to come down to one states, oh -- >> io. >> we have to do our job. absentee ballots. if you'd have a friend who does not have an absentee ballot, tell them how to apply and get it. it is easy. make sure your parents have their ballots. if you have a daughter or a son in college, e-mail them, i did that to my daughter last night. she came back to me within about five minutes. dad, i have already done it and applied. that is what we need to do. when we think about this election, it really is about our kids and grandkids, where do we want to be in the year 2016? imagine the difference. one person has one division and what made this country and the other has another vision, it comes down to the simple question, who do you think bill to this country? who built it? was that the govern
the state's senior citizens, biden said romney's plan to lower taxes would force the nation's elderly to pick up the tab. >> their plan they have for social security, the one they have now, would raise taxes on your social security. >> reporter: romney, who has accused the president of misleading the public on the subject of taxes repeated his pledge on the issue. >> i will not raise taxes on middle income americans. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign thinks pennsylvania's in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania. we're going to take the white house. >> reporter: it could be a questionable move. not only does romney have ground to make up in swing states like ohio and florida, the latest cnn poll of polls in pennsylvania shows romney trailing the president by ten points. republicans have t
to interrupt you. but speaking of politics, mitt romney has accused the president of throwing israel under the bus. now we've seen a very different timeline from israel and the united states from netanyahu. netanyahu says within months iran will have gone beyond the point of no return. american intelligence believes there's more time. where do we stand now with israel and is mitt romney -- >> we stand -- >> that the president has thrown israel under the bus? >> well, first of all, the term throwing israel under the bus is really a remarkable -- you know, it's an unbelievably cynical explosivetive term that is also a lie. it is a fundamental lie. and mitt romney ought to be ashamed of himself for continuing to say it when he knows that prime minister netanyahu and defense minister ehud barak have both said this administration has the strongest security and military cooperation with israel it has ever had. ever. and the president has taken steps to put america in a position to deal with iran with whatever eventuality may be necessary, and i mean whatever eventuality may be necessary. the pre
it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. finally, the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he di
street in the broader landscape of corporate america even strong supporters of romney acknowledged a swing state polling numbers in the direction of economic data and market suggests it is time to brace for a second obama term. i want to ask you about using the word grace in this story. >> yeah, i mean, i think that the president has had an antagonistic relationship with business. i think that is pretty clear. and so, he did over the last several months i think lose the independent vote and certainly the business vote. and so, if the numbers show he's actually winning, i could understand that now they are disappointed because they were counting on some competition. but i don't think you can really tell right now. i mean, it is hard to know how accurate these polls are. in some cases i think the media is pulling democrats. and in other cases, i think they don't necessarily tell you what they're thinking and what they want to do. so it is probably likely, you know, that we see a very commit very close race. you know, it could go either way. and just not sure right now how accurate th
a moderate or conservative he's closer to your values she is. >> bill: the state of the race for governor romney, how is he doing? >> he's got to become more aggressive, become clear, and stick to issues in a firm way. they've allowed the national media to define this campaign for 2 1/2 weeks, and that is an enormous disadvantage if you're a republican. i mean, republicans in the general election have to wake up every morning and say, okay, the obama team includes virtually every reporter i'm going to meet. and you've got to campaign in that context. so you've got to be so clear and so consistent that you reach beyond them. if you don't do that, you'll stay in permanent trouble. >> bill: many people look at debate as being probably the linchpin for this race. do you agree? >> yes. i think in the first debate -- my newsletter at human events coming out tomorrow will walk through this. i think at the first debate, romney has to come across as capable of being president, as a legitimate alternative to obama, and as somebody who's not afraid to say what he really believes, even face-to-face w
affiliate in the united states was city year, and mitt romney was on the board. i wrote him a letter saying we should continue this. i called him and i was out of the white house and i said, governor, i love city year. that is what americorps is all about. i hope you will save it. he urged the republican congress to continue to support city year, and they did. i just visited the program in south africa where the youth unemployment rate exceeds 40%, and 80% of the volunteers in johannesburg have a job the day they leave city year. it turns out it is good economics and good for the society. all of you should know that, and, governor, i thank you for being here. the podium is yours. [applause] >> thank you, mr. president. i appreciate your kind words, and that introduction is very touching. >> if there's one thing we've learned this election season, it's that a few words from bill clinton can do any man a lot of good. [laughter] after that introduction -- since serving as president here in america, president clinton has devoted himself to lifting the downtrodden around the world. one of the be

[laughter] after that introduction, i guess or two for the bounce. since serving as president here in america, president clinton has devoted himself to lifting the downtrodden around the world.
to say that about libya. on the second question, pertaining to governor romney, he just needs to present a more compelling vision of what he wants to do with foreign policy of the united states. he has talked about military modernization, governor romney has, and maintaining the strength of our fleet and air forces. i think governor romney is right about that. president obama -- this goes direct your question -- has a very modern view of how to use the military. i think he decided quickly after taking office that he would take us out of iraq, which he did in december 2011, after building up and afghanistan with the surge began drawing down and said that most of our combat troops would be out by 2014. we fought two major land wars simultaneously with hundreds of thousands of troops involved. we have never done that before in american history, with the exception of the second world war. i think president obama wants to avoid the land wars if we can in the future and use the cooperative -- imperative advantage we have, and our air power, at sea power, and special forces. it has been effecti
. >> absolutely. >> one of romney's top foreign policy advisors said the other day that obama has made the united states look impo nent the world. dot facts bear that out. >> i disagree with that. i disagree with that. the suggestion that somehow america could or even should be in the drivers seat in the arab spring is inherently ridiculous. i mean what happened in egypt was done by the people, the young people, primarily, in tahrir square. then the egypt that was left having lost its autocratic superstructure was still an egypt, just look at the distribution of the population, most likely to produce an islamist government, with which it did. all along the way we should try to maximize our values and our interests, including freedom and human rights, and not just majority rule but minority rights, and individual rights. but we couldn't control it, and we shouldn't. and i expect that's what president morsi will say here tomorrow. but if you look at libya, we had more opportunities to influence it, and we did. and we influenced it in a very positive way. and they like us more than a lot of people d
is running out to resolve differences over iran's nuclear program. and republican mitt romney hit the road on a new bus tour of ohio, as polling there showed the state sliding toward the obama column. as we reported earlier, the housing market is on the rise. find out how much online. hari sreenivasan explains. >> sreenivasan: on our making sense page, you can play with our interactive graphics and track the price index in 20 different u.s. cities. plus, you can follow the ups and downs for an average home's selling price. all that and more is on our web site, newshour.pbs.org. judy? >> woodruff: and that's the newshour for tonight. on wednesday, we'll look at the presidential campaigns targeting young voters in ohio. i'm judy woodruff. >> ifll: and i'm gwen ifill. we'll see you online, and again here tomorrow evening. thank you, and good night. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> bnsf railway. >> and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting science, technology, and improved economic performance and financial literacy in the 21st century. and with the ongoing s
overseas. i wanted to say that about libya. on the second question, pertaining to governor romney, i think that, you know, he just needs to, you know, he needs to present a more compelling vision with what he wants to do for the foreign policy and the united states. he talked a lot about military moderrization romney has about main -- maintaining the strength of our air force and fleet. president obama i think has a modern view hoe how he wants to use the military. i think he decided quickly after taking office he would take us out of iraq which he did in december of twch and after building up in afghanistan with the surge in 2009, he would begin to draw down in afghanistan he said that most of our combat troops would be out in 2014. clearly, you know, we have been in an unusual period since 9/11. we have fought two land wars with hundred of thousands of troops involved. with have never done it before with the exception of world war ii. i think president obama wants to avoid land wars if we can in the future and use the comparative individual that we have. and that's our air power, and our
candidate mitt romney and president obama will both address attendees at the clinton global initiative today. the meeting begins sunday with leaders in business and philanthropy. and secretary of state hillary clinton spoke monday. this year's meeting addressed poverty, health and the apartment. we will bring in mitt romney's remarks live at nine eastern here on c-span2. than president obama's address to the clinton global initiative at noon eastern on c-span. >> new york representative bob turner and former new york city mayor ed koch last week talked about the jewish vote in the upcoming november presidential election. former mayor koch has been a vocal critic of president obama's policy toward israel. he still supports the president. but also discuss the wars in iraq and afghanistan and u.s. relations with the middle east. from fordham university law school in new york, this is about an hour and a half. >> we are here again once again in connection with this conference dedicated to examining the 2012 presidential election, and the way it may be being shaped by the memory of the holocaust
is with the president, he's doing well in the national polls and also in these battleground states. the most interesting battleground state is ohio, where it looks like there have been a consistent number of polls that shows the president pulling away ahead of mitt romney outside of the margin of error. things going well for the president. expectations couldn't be higher for mitt romney in debates. >> three new polls show obama with the lead in battleground states. >> in new hampshire and north carolina, and in nevada. what's interesting about nevada is that the president is going to be there for three days of debate preparation. nevada, an early voting state. not just about november 6th in nevada, and the president will be there for three days, have you at least one event. what that does is stir up the democrats in nevada so they can get those votes banked right now and nevada is about two points in that poll, very close battleground state. what's interesting about that state, it's live. going right now. and we don't have to wait until election day. >> everybody keeps talking, six weeks to go before el
the political one. after romney's trip to israel and all the statements that had been made trying to describe what life is like between israel and the united states under obama, i enjoyed reading what a woman over there thought and she said, he is just pandering to us. >> you're talking about sequestration. we have speakers on the hill who are kicking cans down the road. iran and afghanistan. this administration -- we are taking our forces out by 2014. some people in military say that it is premature. along the same way with iran, people talk about the red lines but if they are the color of a jacket. you can see them. i can remember us in north korea were they had a separate program. cowrie take action if we want to? >> with regard -- can we take action if we want to? >> with regard to iraq, there is a pretty strong level of confidence that we have a good handle on the program. with that said, there is always potential for surprises. what this president has insured is that we have taken the necessary preparatory steps so that the options are real. they are ready. i can tell you that when he t
. let me put a political code on this. that is to note that after romney's trip to israel and all the statements that have been made trying to show what light there is between israel and the united states under obama, i think that expert commentary i most enjoyed reading was that of an 87-year-old jewish woman in a condo association asked during the trip what she thought. she smiled and said he's just pandererring to us. >> you had a question? >> yeah, michele you were just tbawbting sequestration. we have special sneakers up here on the hill to kick the cans down the road. there's are a couple of ied for the president assuming he's electing along the same lines with kicking the can down the road. there is iran and afghanistan. colon mentioned, you don't -- when you go to war but this administration has locked and racing are getting out. we're taking our combat forces by 2014, some people in a military suggests that's premature so long as the safe haven remain in pakistan. it's going to be festering wound. along the same way, iran and redlines, people talk about these redlines lik
words against him. this was soon after the president's state of the union address. we have come too far to turn back now. this is donald trump and the mitt romney over there. "you guys hold him down, and i will cut his hair off." obama is pointing at mitt romney. america, i smell something fishy. there we go. this is the president painting the economy over there which has wilted. we have it flip-flops here. government health care and same- sex marriage. mitt romney says, well, you get used to it. -- used to them. these are the obamacare sparklers. there it is. the tea party, that is mitt romney and paul ryan. "you are not really my type, but your wing man makes you irresistible." do you support chick-fil-a's ceo on traditional marriage or do you favor a nationwide boycott? i miss the separation of church and fast food. this is not talking to the machine very well. do we support the failed policies that got us into the miss or the failed policies that have not gotten us out of it? i do a lot of cartoons where i do not really concentrate -- i am a big believer in the just opposing stupidi
